comment Body column is not visible on Announcements web part
Yes it does, and it does exactly that on my development box. I'm trying to figure out why it does different things in different environments, and why it no longer works in production.

comment Title link points to portal, not to list
Yes, There is a custom Web Part in the Dispform.aspx page. However, the List Web Part (The web part that shows all the fields) is NOT there, it should be minimized and hidden. Could this be the problem? And it is not in the Closed Web Part Gallery. How do I get this web part back?

comment Fully delete a user from the User Information List (WSS 3.0)
In one site collection I am testing, the value of Web.SiteUserInfoList.Items.Count is 30, while Web.SiteUserInfoList.ItemCount is 4116! But doing a search such as Items.GetItemById will NOT show these deleted users.

comment Fully delete a user from the User Information List (WSS 3.0)
If you delete a user from the User Information List, either through the browser or through code, they are retained in the List with a field "Deleted" set to 1 (true). You don't see them in the list, you can only find them if you do a CAML query that specifically searches for "Deleted = 1". They will NOT appear in a CAML query that doesn't specify the Deleted field.

comment Show deleted users in User Information List programmatically
Yes, my query works ONLY when I include the "<FieldRef Name='Deleted' />" tag. A query for any other field(s) will not include deleted users. Next question: Is there a way to (a) restore or (b) delete for good any of these "deleted" users? The Delete() function throws an error, and changing the "Deleted" field does not throw an error, but has no effect.

comment Show deleted users in User Information List programmatically
Short of querying the Content Database directly, is there a way to access "UserInfo" from, say, the SharePoint Object Model?

comment Retrieve only the fields shown in userdisp.aspx from User Information List
This does meet my immediate need, which is to provide the site manager with a means of managing the fields shown in the web part without inventing a complicated method (like in the properties pane). However, the Details View does NOT match the userdisp.aspx form. If anyone has a solution to the original problem, I would like to hear it.

comment Retrieve only the fields shown in userdisp.aspx from User Information List
Thanks, Kai! That sent me in the right direction, but here's a quirky thing: The viewfields are for the unedited detail view, the workaround I found was to replace web (the current web site, or SPContext.Current.Web) with this: SPContext.Current.Site.OpenWeb(SPContext.Current.Web.ServerRelativeUrl) Then it works as designed. I have to retrieve the SPField using the ViewField, but it works somewhat, almost, elegantly. Thanks again for the revelation.
